I am not your woman I'm your mirror And I become you isn't that what you wanted? Isn't that what we're going for? I am not a singer this is not my voice I'm a story that you make up in your mind It's cold inside your mind I might just start a fire And look me over and over Take a picture take a picture it'll last longer than me Look me over and over Take a picture take a picture maybe I can see me too As I'm singing about you I am not a boulder you can move me Oh come on move me Come on move me I am not a boulder you can move me with a flicker of your Long dark eyelashes Your long dark eyelashes

Keep it up Keep it going Keep on running Don't look back If you do There's no knowing What you might see in your tracks Can you smell the fallen branches and The eucalyptus brambles Hear the wind tear through the shambles of our love Come on whippoorwill give out a trill give me a chill Make me forget the things I'm thinking of Thinking of And the city in the distance makes me doubt my own existence Swear this missing you is eating me alive Still I must admit it's been a bit of a relief From constantly convincing you I'm still on your side Babe there are no sides The world is round Keep it up Keep it going Keep on running Don't look back If you do There's no knowing What you might see in your tracks You might see me in some kitchen drenched in sunlight I ain't kidding You've got a habit of letting me stick to your shoe I might be getting old but still I'm told I'm the kind of girl Who can give, give, give a man the blues Give a man the blues And the city in the distance makes me doubt my own existence Swear this missing you is eating me alive Still I must admit it's been a bit of a relief From constantly convincing you I'm still on your side Babe there are no sides The world is round Babe there are no sides The world is round Babe there are no sides The world is round

Baklava 04:41
Your folks are doing the best that they can Your dad crashed the family van Late for dinner but you were all alright Mom says why not make a date out of it You all check in to a Motel 6 And they let you stay up real late Your mom made baklava You watched Robin Williams Through static on the T.V. Static on the T.V. You're living someone's American dream Chocolate milkshake made with real ice cream Missed the dinner but you were all alright About time I got a new one dad says anyways Hey maybe we can sue them and not have to pay That put the smile back on his face And he let you stay up real late Your mom made baklava You watched Robin Williams Through static on the T.V. Static on the T.V. And the snow fell down The snow fell down The snow fell down

Praying Man 06:22
Last summer I wrote Three names on the wall Of a temple to burn, burn down My friend and my brother And you, you, you, you Then my friend got the hell out of town Last summer I wrote Three names on the wall Of a temple to set them free My brother went crazy And you, you, you, you You fell in love with me I've never been a praying man Never learned to talk to God Never got no answers back Not a whisper wink or nod Daddy goes to church now You know he never used to At least he hadn't in a long long time He don't get down on his knees He doesn't take communion He says it's stale they make you wait in line Momma goes to church now, too She says she loves the music Believers they can really rock & roll The choir and the electric guitars And the holy ghost They fill her up, they make her feel whole I've never been a praying man Never learned to talk to God Never got no answers back Not a whisper wink or nod A whisper a wink This morning I woke up At half past five I don't know why Maybe dreaming maybe it was the birds I kicked a bit you woke up too And held me close and held me true And we exchanged our three little words This morning I woke up Bleary-eyed and to my surprise I saw you knock on wood No it's not a euphemism You're not usually superstitious but I guess something's been going good I've never been a praying man Never learned to talk to God Never got no answers back Not a whisper wink or nod A whisper a wink or a nod

West Texas 05:13
A small downpayment and then eighty bucks a month Buys a rectangle of sand out in the sun With a pale sky and cacti, it'd be perfect Just for one or two, one or two Like me and you, me and you And whatever we wanna get up to Let the others have their mega mansions We'll make our home tiny and lean With a tiny kitchen and a giant yard And tiny kids to terrorize it If you know what I mean They can learn to recognize the rattlers And to love themselves like they love everyone And to always wear their hats when they run Around our rectangle of sand under the sun Let's buy land out in West Texas For a small down payment Then the price of two dinners out a month And we're good cooks No mineral rights no water But just look at that sunset Look at that sunset Have I convinced us yet? You can express yourself through sculpture And I can learn to immerse myself in synths Animal, vegetable, or mineral It would be criminal To walk away from a dream like this I know we're in our 20s and it sounds kinda insane But we could build a basin and try harvesting the rain Or pick the prickly pears with tongs when they start getting ripe Or even make a hot tub out of scrap and copper pipe For when the fall of man it finally comes Could maybe get ourselves a couple guns Let's buy land out in West Texas For a small down payment Then the price of two dinners out a month And we're good cooks No mineral rights no water But just look at that sunset Look at that sunset Have I convinced us yet? Please let's live out in West Texas Where animal, vegetable, or mineral Not all the flying objects Are identifiable Let's buy land out in West Texas 'Cause darling it's cheap And darling I love you And there ain't nobody or nothing Who can tell us what to do Under so much sky but God

Hey friend Please don't go Don't you know I need you here He loves you I love you too Maybe not quite like him Does it matter I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town You can kiss all the boys and I can kiss them too Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go If you stay We'll play hooky for a day We can go to the beach or a museum Or we could not We could just sit at home and talk I'll write a song about The things that I've been feeling I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town I'll kiss all the boys that you want me to Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go Hey friend I'm so sorry that you're bored It's all my fault I never thought it'd come to this I love you You love me too But maybe not quite like I love you and it matters I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town I'll kiss all the boys but I'll pretend they're you Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go
